In case you missed it – PSO has been making a splash in Pennsylvania lately – on Facebook Live! PSO has partnered with cyber schools in Pennsylvania to discuss the ins and outs of parent advocacy during Facebook Live events hosted at campuses across the state.
The first was held at Insight Cyber Charter School on November 1. Joined by Insight CEO Eileen Cannistraci and Executive Director Shannon McElwain, PSO Board President Tillie Elvrum discussed her early experiences as a cyber school parent living in Pennsylvania. She discussed her first steps into parent advocacy, which included mobilizing parents to reach out to their legislators in the midst of budget cuts threatening their children’s education.
The second Facebook Live event was broadcast from Commonwealth Charter Academy’s AgWorks laboratory at their campus in Harrisburg on November 5. The panel featured the school’s CEO, Dr. Reese Flurie, who discussed the importance of career readiness for all students, followed by a Q & A with parents on how best to communicate effectively with decision makers who impact school options for students.
We hope you will tune into PSO’s third Facebook Live event which will be hosted at PA Cyber School’s State College campus on December 5 at 1 PM EST. Don’t forget to register here!
With so much going on in Pennsylvania – we’re excited to continue to partner with cyber schools across the Commonwealth to meet parents and talk with them about he importance of school choice advocacy.
